Run program at shutdown

I think this is asked about fairly often. I would like to run a program (SuperDuper!) at shutdown. Obviously, it should be possible to customize the OSX shutdown procedure to do what I need.
Before I dig into this, any advice? I don't know much about OSX's (10.4) startup and shutdown, but I assume they're a variant on the tradition rc or init.d style scripts (I know launchd does startup). I'd appreciate any input before hours disappear.

Because it opens up a big can of worms, such as people who might try to run lengthy tasks such as SuperDuper. There are any number of problems that a "run at shutdown" operation could cause. Apple has wisely chosen not to provide such an option.
One of the main reasons you will never see anything like this is because it is so easy to accomplish in a slightly different way. Instead of creating a task to "run at shutdown", create task which does something (such as run SuperDuper) and then shuts down. This is easy to accomplish and will cause no problems whatsoever.

  • How can I run a program at shutdown

    I want a program to run automatically at shutdown (or logout, since this computer has a single user...so I think that will work).
    I have searched for an answer, but I can't find it. I can find startup items, but not shutdown items.
    Anyone?

    Create a 'Stay Open' AppleScript app containing only a quit handler (i.e. no idle handler):
    on quit
        -- desired actions here
        continue quit
    end quit
    (Don't omit "continue quit"). Put it in your Login Items. It will stay running but consuming no CPU and will be triggered when you log out or shutdown.
    =-=-=-=-
    You could make it dual purpose:
    say "Good to see you back [[[emph -]]]brian"
        -- or anything else at login
    on quit
        -- desired actions here
        continue quit
    end quit

    Subject: Can't Run program in Debug Mode
    Has anyone else experienced this problem? We have written a non-express
    program that uses the Express generated services project as a supplier
    plan. However, when we try running this program in debug mode about 50%
    (or more) of the time we abend while Forte is trying to partition the
    application. Since we have many database classes in our Business Model we
    are wondering if Forte is timing out during the partition phase or if the
    server partition is running out of memory . The following error messages
    are produced by Forte. Any suggestions???

    -----------------------------------------------

    Hi,
    We have had the same problem in a non-express application
    with a heavy server partition. In our case, the error was not
    systematic, depending on the server workload at the time we
    tried to partition and run.
    The work-around we're using is to put the -fm flags (increasing the x
    parameter to say 30000) in the 'server arguments' of your server
    partition
    properties in the partition workshop. Note that if your server is a Unix
    platform,
    you need to put double-quotes before and after the parenthesis in the -fm
    syntax.
    Hope this helps,
    Vincent Figari
    BTW, what Forte version are you using ?

  • Access to a FG from another running program

    Group, Is there any way to "get a hold of" a reference of a functional global running inside another vi?  I have a program that uses a functional global to pass data between vi's of a program.  I have this program starting up as a service when I start the computer so I don't really have access to its front panel.  Part of the data that the FG holds is a STOP flag and will shut down mulitple parts of this program.  I would like to build another program that I can start and run at will that will set the STOP flag in the "hidden" running program.  I am not sure quite how to do this.
    Thanks
    Todd

    What you are essentially asking to do is to access an internal resouce of another program. Doesn't really matter if it's a LabVIEW program. In your case you could enable the ActiveX server for the other program so you can access the VI that way. The LabVIEW Help contains information on how to enable the ActiveX server for an app and how to use it from another application. You could also use shared variables. You can take a look at this overview for more ideas:

  • I am having a problem w/ my itunes working correctly due to accidentally running Itunes through my troubleshooting, running programs made for previous versions of windows!! How do I turn it off?!??

    I am having a problem w/ my Itunes working correctly, after accidentally running Itunes through my  troubleshooter  to, Run Programs Made For PreviousVersions of Windows. It keeps popping up that the Compatibility  Version is on, to make sure it's off before opening my Itunes Account. I've looked everywhere, Please, Please, How Do I Make This Right??!??

    It sounds like either your hard drive or the SATA cable that connects it to the motherboard are failing. This could be heat related in your case, which is why you see it after it runs awhile. You can take it to the Genius Bar for a free evaluation. If you decide to test it yourself, I usually suggest moving the hard drive to an external enclosure. If it works there for awhile, the cable is probably the issue.

  • Need help in using [RUN PROGRAM] Activity against a server in another domain

    Hi Experts,
    We have two domains with two way trust enabled. Orch server exists in DomainA and target server exists in DomainB.
    We are trying to execute some scripts(g:IPCONFIG) from orch server to target server using RUN PROGRAM activity. This is  running fine and give expected results, if I give Built-in Administrator credentials in Security Tab. But I'm getting some
    strange values like chinese/japanese language strings, If I use a DomainB/DomainA user (Part of local admin of the target server) in security tab as well as Advanced tab-->Runas.
    Things I tried:
    - DomainA/DomainB user in Security Tab as well as RunAs tab  ---> Strange Strings
    - DomainA/DomainB user in Security Tab and BuiltIn Administrator in RunAs tab  ---> Strange Strings
    - BuiltIn Administrator in Security Tab ---> Expected result
    - BuiltIn Administrator in Security Tab and DomainA/DomainB user in RunAs tab  --> ProgramExitCode = -10xxxxxx
    But our requirement is to run the script on the target server as Domain User(Part of local admin).
    Thanks in Advance

  • Does win8/8.1/10 kill long-running programs automatically as stated in specs? reasons why?

    does win8/8.1/10 kill/end-task long-running programs automatically as stated in specs? how specifically does it detect a locked-up process?
    has this been put into windows 7 at any time to make it similar to windows 8?
    Please supply accurate answers. thank you.
    My understanding the reason for this change was to handle locked-up programs.
    I do have a number of long-running processes. some examples of mine and scenarios for other users:
    simulations on a Workstation or HPC Server
    doing a directory tree walk on a hard disk with >=1TB of data
    reference articles I have found on the subject:
    windows 7
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/exit-program-not-responding#1TC=windows-7
    windows 8
    From some of what I understand, you can also get the "Program Not Responding" or similarly titled dialog box when:
    bug in the source code of the program in question. for instance, while(1){} such as forever loops (win7)
    similar program bug when declaring a function one way but defining it a different way and then calling it (mismatch in function signature) (win7)
    similar to above with DLLs in using MSVCRT*.DLL or other
    (?) can't remember for sure on this, but I think some badly formed calls or it was invalid values or data type mismatch to Win32 API can do this from buggy code. (win7)
    for (x=0; x < 16777216; x++) {your code here...} in other words, large values for loop termination (win7)
    this is a repost of http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-performance/does-win88110-kill-long-running-programs/d35c3c9e-c6f4-4bbf-846a-2041bf2167a0?tm=1427518759476
    here due to a request to do so.

    My understanding the reason for this change was to handle locked-up programs.
    Hi Jim,
    First, I have to admit that I'm not fully understanding the question, If a program is not responding, it means the program is interacting more slowly than usual with Windows, typically could be a confliction of software or hardware resources between
    two programs, lack of system resources, or a bug in the software or drivers. In that case, we can choose to wait or end the program. This design is similiar in Windows 7, Windows 8 and other OS.
    For deeper analysis, system determines whether the system considers that a specified application is not responding using a "IsHungAppWindow function",
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms633526.aspx
    And this link also give some explanation: Preventing Hangs in Windows Applicationshttps://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd744765%28v=vs.85%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396
    While I'm not a developer, to better understand this, I recommend you contact members in the MSDN Forum:

  • Checking for running programs using a abap program

    Is there a way in ABAP to detect from within a program that another process is running the same program? Meaning if PROG1 is running, could PROG1 check to see if another process is running program PROG1?

    Use the locking concept.   You can either create your own, or a popular one to use is ESINDX, passing parameters: relid 'ZZ', SRTFD program name, and SRTF2 = 0. 
    The logic is:
    Attempt to get lock (FM ENQUEUE_ESINDX, perhaps).
    If lock got -> run program
    If lock not got -> quit.
    You have to put this logic at the start of your program.

  • Payment Run Program (FPY1)

    Hello Experts,
    I am trying to understand payment run process (FPY1) and outbound direct debit file generation using standard transactions. We are using NACHA defined ACH format (which is a standard format used by US based banks). I found below event Modules for Payment Medium Formats: FKK_PAYMEDIUM_ACH_00, FKK_PAYMEDIUM_ACH_20, FKK_PAYMEDIUM_ACH_30, FKK_PAYMEDIUM_ACH_40. Unfortunately I am not able to determine their usefulness.
    As per my understanding FPY1 updates DPAYH table and then run program "SAPFKPY3" to generate a file but then whats the use of function modules mentioned above?
    Also, when I ran "SAPFKPY3" it generated message saying "Format ACH: No payment mediums created - No payment media were created for payment group 0 for format ACH." I am damn sure I am missing something, but don't know what.
    Any suggestions would be of great help. Thanks.
    Kind Regards,
    Nikhil J.

    Hi Nikhil,
    The FMs that you have mentioned in your post are used to create the ACH format file that is send to the banks.
    FKK_PAYMEDIUM_ACH_20-For File Header
    FKK_PAYMEDIUM_ACH_30-For Batch header
    FKK_PAYMEDIUM_ACH_40-For Payment Details
    You can view these FMs by going to Transaction Code-FQP3. Select in the ACH format and clicking on "Event Module for Payment medium formats.
    So, the ACH file that gets created during the FPY1 run is actually done by the standard program SAPFKPY3 with the help of these preconfigured FM's linked to the ACH payment medium format.
    Now to the error that you are getting.Firstly Check whether the payment proposal list is getting generated or not.
    If the payment proposal is not there, then there is some basic problem in the configuration settings. 
    (a) Check the company code for which you are running the  FPY1 run, is the Payment medium linked with that in the config.
    IMG->Financial Accounting->Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable->Payments->Incoming/Outgoing Payment Creation->
    Define Payment Methods
    IMG->Financial Accounting->Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable->Payments->Incoming/Outgoing Payment Creation->
    Define Specifications for Paying Company Code
    If the payment proposal is there, then the problem is only there in the payment medium format.
    (a) Check the FM's are linked to the ACH format in FQP3.
    (b) Note 1064779 also involves some manual activities to be performed apart from the code changes.
         The manual activites are as follows and has to be perfomed one after another.
    Hope it helps....
    Thanks,
    Amlan

    Whats the error message??
    Just a guess, but could be (without seeing the error) that you've already closed the TestCaseBuf reader by closing the result set, hence when you go to read it, you're reading on closed reader.
    Give this a go...Put the //<!--run program --> code into the result set while loop
    while (rs.next())
    TestCaseBuf = new java.io.BufferedReader(new java.io.InputStreamReader(rs.getBinaryStream("testValue")));
    //<!--start run program -->
